You've heard this all before, "Proper skin care is very important for maintaining optimum skin health and hygiene. A major part of this care involves the daily day and night routines.".. Surprisingly, my Night-Time Skincare Routine post has received the most views out any of my posts! Since then I've received a ton of emails asking about my morning routine. SOOOOOOO.... Here it is. 🙌🏻
I'm not going to lie, I don't wake up and immediately start on this routine.. I usually wake up around 8ish and spend the first couple hours with my little boy. I play with him, feed him baby mush, eat my own breakfast, and change a few dirty diapers in between everything.. Glamorous, right? 😝 Hahah I'm joking, I really do love it. Nothing makes me happier than getting to spend all of my time with Leo. 💕 Now, let's get into my skincare routine before I get all sentimental and even more off topic...
Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser
I start off my routine by wetting my face and rubbing one pump of this cleanser into my face with my fingers. I love this cleanser! It's gentle, non-irritating, and perfectly removes any leftover gunk from the night before. I have pretty oily skin, and this has worked out really well for me! I don't use a Clarisonic in the mornings, just at night. My skin gets a little irritated if I use it twice a day.
L'Oreal Youth Code Day Cream Moisturizer
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
Once I finish washing my face, I dry it and put on some L'Oreal Youth Code Day Cream Moisturizer. It helps to fade dark spots, acne scars, age spots, and even out my skin tone. I have really discolored skin and this has helped me out A LOT! Now, about an hour later, or right before I do my makeup (whichever comes first), I put on one pump of the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (the oily skin formula). I think it helps my makeup go on more smoothly and stay on longer.
L'Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Eye Smoother
The last step in my routine is this eye cream. If you read my Night-Time Skincare post, you'll notice that I use this at night too. I love love love love LOVE it! It is amazing at making my puffy, dark circles less noticeable. I keep mine in the fridge so that it's cold when I use it. It helps wake me up a little more and feels great! 😍
That's all there is to it! I don't have perfect skin, I'm far from it. But I can definitely say that ever since I started using these products, it has improved immensely! Not only that, but my makeup goes on sooo much more nicely, and lasts a million times longer than before. Proper skincare is key. You can have incredible artistry skills, the most expensive makeup and brushes, but without a nice canvas to work on, you're making things a lot tougher and a lot more expensive. ...Did that even make sense? 🤔😂🙄😓
